People who throw their burning cigarette butts in the landscaping at the grocery store while we are under a fire hazard warning and then catch the parking lot on fire while I'm at the store....

Grrr. So selfish. So so selfish. It is not that hard to properly dispose of your cigarette butts. But no. 'I am going to throw it in all that grass and dried twigs. derp derp.'

Luckily they got it all put out.

If someone said that to me in my situation I would have straight up punched them in the face. Nevermind the fact he thinks he's funny by offering my dogs up to other people.
My husband never fails to say thi about the dogs horses or the cats. I literally laughed out loud reading that and am glad he is not the only one!

I just feel bad for the people he said that to!
It'd be one thing if they said "oh we're looking to get a new dog" but the day after their dog died while they're visibly broken up about a loss...

Gah one more month and 2 of the 4 will be out of his hair for a little while. Not the good ones of course, but now he'll only be able to pawn off 2 instead of 4 lol

OMG. My accountant did my taxes yesterday but I was missing something so I got him the last piece today and he finished them.
I've owed the state a couple times before... like $50-odd, then one year it was like $2. Most times I get a state refund though and I ALWAYS get a federal refund, even if it's only a few hundred.

Not this year.

This year I owe the fed... a lot. How the hell did this happen? People said when you buy a house it's GOOD for your taxes. Apparently my employer isn't taking out nearly enough. At all.

I have no idea where I'm going to come up with the money. It's almost an entire paycheck between both the fed and the state.

I need to stop getting all upset every time I hear Mia's breathing. I started crying while shaping with her because she was excited and all I could think about was that darn collapsed trachea. She wasn't having trouble, just sounding loud. And I keep thinking about how it could get worse and then how do I decide and I just can't think about that kind of thing.

But I can't help thinking about it.

Today I did something so STUPID I am still disgusted with myself. A neighbor came out to introduce herself to Michael and I today and we had the dogs with us (as we were about ready to head to the beach). Abrams is an idiot and barks at people until he can physically meet them (we're working on it)...so I DROPPED HIS LEASH. AND LET MY 85 POUND DOG BARREL UP TO A LADY WHO WAS BEING POLITE AND SAYING HI TO HER NEW NEIGHBORS. I'm just so used to having my dog loving friends/family visit that it was my first instinct and afterwards I was like, "ZOMG, WHY DID I JUST DO THAT?!?!?!?!" and felt like a horrible human being.

Abrams went running up to her, said hello (by being a retriever and physically leaning in to her legs), then ran around our yard for a moment with Cynder before coming back. He didn't do anything - but I still let my overenthusiastic LARGE dog barrel his way to a stranger whose reaction was polite, but not the reaction of someone who likes large dogs.

I hate myself. I am an idiot. My neighbor now probably thinks we're stupid, idiotic people. God, why was I such an idiot. I feel absolutely horrible.

That moment you're home alone at 11 pm (mum is in Florida and brother works nights), having a shower and the dogs start barking like MAD. OMG I almost had a heart attack! I yelled my brother's name to see if he was home early from work .. no answer .. Seamus and Wilbur (my mum's Chihuahua/Yorkie) are still BARK BARK BARKING, and they NEVER bark. I hear someone walking and I FREAK out and yell HELLO?????? WHO'S THERE???? and my brother says 'oh hey' .. He came home early from work and guess had his ear phones on so couldn't hear me yelling for him. MY HEART IS STILL RACING.
